Rumor has it, that NOA won't be publishing Devil's Third.
Typical NOA, time for Xseed to step in.
i think nintendo are deliberately sabotaging the game on wiiu to make it a NX launch release .. then again, nintendo historically distance themselves from games like this. they did they same with eternal darkness when that came out. they were uncomfortable with the themes featured in the game and didnt want to associate with it. it seems nintendo still have the same issues, they only want to be viewed in a family friendly light. its difficult when they place themselves in a pigeon hole because just like disney, it restricts what they can do. they cant be seen publishing games which feature horror, violence or sexual content. that is fine for them, they know their market.. which then raises the question to their more mature audience- is nintendo catering to you any more? this is why sony and microsoft are dominating the market, because they dont put the same restrictions on the content they publish
Well they just lost another sale. I was definitely picking this up but not anymore even if it's digital ;)
Um i think splatoon might be the better game. Plus xseed or some one may pick it up. I only buy digital any way so. Xenoblade is coming anyway, along with fire emblem, then zelda. He will need more that blood and guts for it to sell. They have some serious heat multiplayer game wise now. mk8,splatoon, smash. I'll probably get fatal frame before this anyway, and fast racing. I gota bunch of indies to get too. I believe some thing is going on with the development. We will see. I'd rather another laststory and pandora tower really. What restrictions? like sony using a kick starter to fund a game and teasing another vaporware project in guardian? How is that internet connection going? Oh and where are the sony 1st party games? So far I got tons of nintendo first party games but I can't even get my god of war on with the ps4... What is going on with sony? If there wasn't any 3rd party support then I would say the ps4 is looking like the next vita... the senerio is almost the same. get a huge lead.... wait... wait... then don't release any games for it. I mean they have a paid internet service they better have port and localization money and time.
look at the difference how sony treats the north america market compared to nintendo. night and day difference.
Agreed. That is why I respect Sony and have a PS4 ATM. It's not used, but I already have my Wii U replacement, and it won't be the NX. After the way Nintendo treated us with the U, they pretty much lost my trust.
I don't even know what's going on with Nintendo right now.
Would Nintendo really fund a game to make it exclusive then not market it worldwide
ONLY Nintendo do arrogant things like this to make themselves feel better , look at Fatal Frame and the way they market it they co-own the IP for no reason just to mess with fans from other consoles
funny thing is Fatal Frame PS2 classics are still on PSN store even though Nintendo own the franchise.
This will be a NX launch title. Like Zelda will be
Oh come on Nintendo. What's wrong with you!? Is it so wrong to do something that will make consumers happy? At least give it a digital release.
And everyone said I was crazy when I said they are launching their next gen console next year.
No proof it is. History, in fact, points towards the opposite, as does statements from Nintendo themselves. Linking this story and that false assumption is stretching to the break point.
If the quality of the software is the problem then I actually can't blame Nintendo for this. It's the developers' fault for not making the game up to par. But the one thing I still don't get is why they are still releasing the game in other regions
Like i said splatoon is the better game. It really is. This is just some thing for haters to post some bs about hating or being disappointed with nintendo LOL. None of you bought ninja gaiden and you all said this guy sucked along with his sun glasses fetish LOL.. now you want his game and don't even have a wiiu. I think the wiiu imaginary owner program is a smashing success! They are over 30 million strong it would seem. Why are these guys not playing their multiplats on the other systems? Oh well it's their problem back to splatoon.
Even nintendo know what third party games don't sell in wii u.
Well it's not Nintendo as a whole just stupid ass Nintendo of America, they are renowned for doing this shit, I mean they wanna talk about only releasing quality games, what about the letter and some other on the e-shop, there really is some garbage on there, you would think that they would want to put this out in America, since there are few retail releases coming and even less third party. NOA needs to step it up, stop trying to tell us what you think will and won't sell here, look at xenoblade chronicles!
well I guess its certain someone screw up... whether it is Nintendo of Europe for publishing a shitty game or NOA for not publishing a good one remains to be seen
Just to say: Did anyone even watch the video? According to the video, their reasoning is because the game isn't up to snuff, and UnSeen64 even said that after speaking to those who've gotten early release copies of the game; it's riddled with bugs and "isn't even fun to play".
A new level of low for NoA if this is true. The Wii U is in need of games, and they decide to turn their backs on one exclusive, wow.
Oh Nintendo when will you pull your head out of your ass?I was really looking forward to this game.Heres hoping somone picks up the publishing rights.
No wonder it wasn't at E3.
I have this preordered at Gamestop. Anyone know if they're still taking preorders? If not, or if refunds are given, I'd say that would be a good indication of truth in this rumor.
Hear we go. Lets educate you people. The game looks like crap. Nintendo has no problem publishing good games. Dragon Quest, Bravely Second, Layton and now Yokai Watch. Yokai Watch is the biggest series in Japan and Nintendo is localizing it. But they do nothing for fans right?
unseen64 the same guy that said Metroid for Wii U at E3
How can this game be so messed up???? It's been in development for six years???
Here's Itagaki's response about the rumours from his Facebook page: "Guys, Which do you believe me or such site? The world brims over with lies and rumors. Thanks always, mates." Seems like he's calling BS on this already. The embargoes and NDA's are expiring today(?) or very very soon at least.
As happy as I am to see a Rumor actually labeled as such in the title, the amount of people commenting as if it were fact is extremely disheartening.
